CHAMPAIGN -- If you think some extra eyes are watching you while driving around, you may be right. Some University of Illinois students set up video cameras at various places.

Thursday, the cameras were at the corner of Neil Street and Stadium Drive. An engineering professor is using the cameras to collect data before new traffic sensors are installed.

Once the new technology is in place, traffic flow should be smooth with reduced travel time and increased safety.
